Got a quick question: Has anyone ever taken Medifast and does it work? Looking forward for any answer or 2. Another question on my mind: I had RNY on 6-23-10 am 6 months out and have exceeded the goal weight by a lb..

I am wondering how and/or if any one of you have eaten bread and.

What were the pitfalls if any?..

Good question... I dunno what is the right answer to your question. I'll do some Googling and get back to you if I find an useful answer. You should email the people at Medifast as they probably could give you help..

I've heard it's all by how you feel after you're 6 months out. Obviously you need to be very careful to eat whole grains and watch portion sizes, but generally no Medifast food is off the list. The thing I would think of is "Would one piece of bread make me want to have 6?" That's how I got on a table in the OR in the first place. And there are people who stretch their pouches and find themselves 5-10 years down the road in real trouble again... Just my attention to horror stories. Good luck!..

I was told I could eat bread whenever I go to regular Medifast food but he recommended whole wheat sugar free bread which I bought anyways so will not be an issue..

I am only 2 months out and have been allowed bread. It has to be toasted. Our nutritionist is very adamant about us using the Arnold's Sandwich Thins..

I have found that it can be very filling though. I only do bread about once or twice a week and usually I try to do it in the morning as it lays pretty heavy on the pouch...

3 months out today- and I have not ventured down the bread road just yet- so far the closest I have come is FlatOut flat whole wheat flat bread wraps (90 cals, 9 grams protein, 6 net carbs & only 1 gram of sugar!) which I use to make Shelly's pizza 1 or 2 wedges and I am good to go!..

I'm 3 months out, and I eat a small amount of bread with no problems. it's always whole wheat now, which is not as yummy with a peanut butter sandwhich, but hey, not much is as good as it use to be, so........it's all about perception. who am I to complain...working on 170 pounds down now.....

Wolfy.

All bread is not the same but some here needs to find "upnorthguy" post on bread sticks. No joke just fact , he is like us and has lost all to lose and ate a piece of bread that almost killed him..

Obviously it was one of those goofy freak deals but I swear he will never eat untoasted bread agian.

Chew because at a year out it can plug a hole in your stomach like a tar ball..

Less than 3 weeks out here, and I was wondering myself just what the "bread issue" was.... I know I'm not supposed to have any until much later, and I won't. So I'm.

Reading.

Through this string of posts and everyone says they eat this kind or that kind and I'm thinking, Wow.... I WILL get to eat it eventually! Then I read Lu's post about UpNorthGuy having his get stuck and I'm thinking... uh, maybe not.... grrrrrr..... at this point I'm so scared of pouch issues that it's keeping me afraid to introduce new things into my pouch! I've not eaten white bread for about 10 years now, so eating a good bread won't be an issue if I ever get brave enough to do so... I even have 2 (yes, 2) breadmakers and am hoping to create my own "safe" bread at some point much later into this journey....

Time will tell, but in the meantime I'm watching these posts and picking up ideas of what to try when the time is right! Good info here! Thanks!..
